I have in the past organized meetings for some of my clients with their Russian colleagues and witnessed what a great successes they were. It is interesting to compare everything: conditions of work, advantages and difficulties, whether their chosen career is considered prestigious in Russia or not and why.
If you tell me who you would like to meet I will try to find such person in my network of relatives, friends and acquaintances and invite him or her to join us for a dinner. Would you like to meet an art historian or a person who works in Russian museum? Dentist? Charity fund worker? School teacher? Journalist? Real estate manager? Kindergarten teacher?
Let me know and if possible I will invite such a person to join us for a dinner.
No actual payment is required given that we meet at the restaurant and you pay the bill.
